Other adults you will meet: Mrs Dicks – TA, Mrs Dennison– gymnastics teachers and Mrs Sage – ballet teacher. Mrs Dennison is also the Early Years Family support worker. Should you require any support please do not hesitate to contact her.

We are so excited to be working in the Nursery class and look forward to learning through play using our amazing inside and outside environment.

We offer a soft start to the day so parents are welcome to stay when dropping their children off.  Please come into class, stay and support your child settling and talk to the teachers.

Wednesday – Nursery Library day in class. Please bring the book bag, support your child in choosing a book and then take it home to read and share! Find somewhere quiet, talk about the pictures, ask questions to develop comprehension e.g. Why did Goldilocks go into the house? or I wonder why……..

Wednesday and Thursday mornings are P.E days (ballet and gymnastics) so please remember to put your child in loose clothing (leggings for girls) and shoes/trainers they are able to take off/put on themselves e.g. Velcro shoes/trainers. We will be encouraging independence.

Tuesday and Friday are Forest school sessions so please provide sensible clothing for the environment and weather e.g. trousers, labelled wellington boots and waterproofs or sun hat/sun cream. (No open shoes allowed to protect their feet.)

The children love to get wet and muddy in their play so please leave a bag of labelled and spare clothes on their peg. If your child is using nappies then please supply nappies and wipes in a labelled bag on their peg too.
